Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

I've seen videos of flashmobs, but this one is the biggest I've seen yet! Banco Sabadell of Spain celebrated their 130th anniversary with a flashmob. An Orchestra Simfònica del Vallès and various local choirs were in on the performance. They sang and played Beethoven's Ode to Joy.

A little girl gives a coin to a street performer, and gets a surprise in return. Was it staged? Yes, but the people walking in the streets didn't know what was about to happen. That just makes it so wonderful.

The singing and the music is all real.


This same Orchestra Simfònica del Vallès hired graffiti artists to make an image of Beethoven, while they played.

That was amazing and it's inspired me! I want to orchestrate something that makes people stop, smile and laugh like that!

I think they're cool. I just saw a flash mob for Betty White's birthday, it wasn't this big though. ;)
